Petition Honour the BEF's role in France in 1939/1940 with a clasp to the 1939-45 Star.
There are now very few surviving members of the BEF, most of whom must be in their late nineties or over 100 years old. Service personnel who went to the defence of France between 6 June 1944 and 8 May 1945 are entitled to the award of the Legion d'Honneur by the French state but not so the BEF.
